Pre Birth Short Gateaway

One of our pre-birth rituals would be to go somewhere where we can relax and enjoy before Mommy pops out and sleepless pantang session comes in.

We went to Penang prior the 1st birth.
and we went to Andaman Langkawi prior to the 2nd birth.
For the 3rd one, we didnt go far. we stayed really really close.
Like, 15 minutes drive from home. 
We went to Holiday Inn Glenmarie.

Why on earth did we do that?
What happened to our so called long distance trip?
Well, Hub was really really busy. He could not take days off. and the only holiday we got was the public holiday, which was Chinese New Year at that time. and for us to travel out of KL during CNY is like asking me to forever sulk and asking me to turn into a monster throughout the trip. 
I dont deal with traffic jams well. I mean it. I will become irritated and moody and wanting to scream to everybody in the car. and for me to scream to my 2 daughters, who can be pretty handful during a long trip, will not be nice.
And I was about 33-34 weeks pregnant at that time.

Hence, the short vacay to Holiday Inn Glenmarie.

It was surprisingly a nice play to stay. 
Even though it was located in Glenmarie, it was however quite secluded from the business venues and all. There were not many people there (CNY, people go out of KL kan?) and very green. It was just next to the Glenmarie Golf and Country Club. So you can see green golf course everywhere. 
very peaceful indeed.
We didnt feel like we were in Shah Alam at all. 

The pool was quite okay.
Ayra and Amna enjoyed it so much. So did their father.






They haven't been to the pool for quite some time. 
That's why we wanted to be some where they can get their swimming skills on again.

It was lovely to see them having so much fun swimming. for hours. 
until kecut all fingers and toes!

Travel Halal: Disneyland Shanghai

Ni Hao! We just got back from a week holiday in Shanghai!

We went there with my mom, parents in law, sisters in law and her children. We were 12 altogether: 4 children, 1 baby and 7 adults. We booked out flights about a month before departure via AirAsia (what else?). December in Shanghai is winter time, so the weather was pretty cold with temperature ranging from 2-8C. That was really cold.

We bought a ground tour differently. Basically I was arranging the tentative, accommodation and guide. I found this tour guide from Mr Google: IslamiChina. They offer muslim friendly tour package across China, and also like ours, customized.

Our plan was to spend about 4 days in Shanghai and 3 days in Shaoxing. Initially Mom and I wanted to find cotton textile in Shaoxing, but that will be another story.

We reached Pudong airport around 1am. Our agent, Cici brought us to our Apartment in the city and our trip started off with Disneyland on the first day.  

I booked the apartment myself through Boo…

Muslimah Hair Salon. i Like!

ever since i got married, i have never got my hair cut by other than my husband. he doesn't let me go to sebarangan salon unless the salon only has female workers and no men are allowed in. i totally respect his wishes. because this is the right thing to do. he is protecting my honor and loyalty as Allah's servant. 
and because of that, i had been having no-so-great hair styles. sorry dear.. haha..  he said he doesn't mind the way i look and what not. but i do mind how i look in front of my own husband! because he is the only one that can see me totally, every little thing matters. what i look like, what i wear, etc . even he said he doesn't mind, i do. A LOT!
so, imagine my delight  when i discovered this muslimah salon in Shah Alam. Iris Salon & Spa.  located in Seksyen 7, near the tasik.
when i stepped into salon, i was already impressed.  the salon looked really nice.  dimmed light, zikir sounds, sophisticated interior, and most of all, friendly owner and styl…

Oil and vinegar

i finally found a Halal BalsamicVinegar!

i went to Setia City Mall to buy a broccoli to make fish and mashed potato with broccoli and tomato on the side, for buka puasa. whilst there, i strolled along the alley of vinegar and sauces.

Hubby and i have been looking for balsamic vinegar, to eat with bread and olive oil. the Italian style. or more correct, Rasulullah saw style.. yes, our beloved Prophet saw likes to eat bread with olive oil and vinegar. but the practice is more familiar among the Italians compared to the muslims in Malaysia. Rasulullah saw actually likes vinegar. there are many hadith that say this about him. i don't remember the exact phrase.. sorry..

we didn't know the type of vinegar used, but seeing the italians eat bread with balsamic, we guess it makes more sense than eating synthetic cooking vinegar! and also, balsamic is the only black vinegar that we know.

we managed to find balsamic before this but looking at the back of the bottle, the content said: g…
